Favorite Hotel – Hotel Vertigo in San Francisco
December 15, 2014
As Graphic Recorders, we do a lot of traveling and stay in many hotels across the world. We’d like to have a series of posts highlighting some of our favorite places to stay. In this installment, we take you on a stylish tour of Hotel Vertigo in San Francisco, CA.
This historical hotel is located in the heart of the art district in San Francisco, a few blocks from Polk Street and steps away from the dormitories of San Francisco Art Institute. The hotel made a cameo in Alfred Hitchcock‘s psychological thriller ‘Vertigo,’ and has reincarnated as a boutique space blending the vintage baroque and chic modernism.

Looking down the flight of stairs, we had the same reaction as many reviewers from Yelp: ‘Vertigo for sure!’ (Photo Courtesy: Yelp)
Another reason to love this hotel is the art that surrounds it. Steps down the street is Hashimoto Contemporary Gallery and Spoke Art Gallery; the latter held an intriguing Wes Anderson-themed gallery exhibition.
In conclusion we enjoyed Hotel Vertigo very much. Now we know the film so much more intimately, especially after seeing it played on loop behind the front desk and the very friendly staffs!
